You may want to read the introduction to C-Net 64 before proceeding.
C-Net 128 is a monster program compared to its 64 counterpart. The added features in the maintenance area, the addition of online BASIC support, and all the new commands and abilities in this version of the program are just not reflected properly in the "Facts" area below.
The features page from a previous web site is mirrored here.
The information below applies to the last version of C-Net 128 I had access to. The mention of network support comes at best from rumor and recalled observations, the details are unknown (and thus wanted!)
